Winnie & Walter "Share the love - Simon Says Stamp' Part 1

Hello friends,

Recently, i got a chance to shop at Simon Says Stamp that carries all of the products from every card maker's wishlist. When I saw that Winnie & Walter is Featuring SSS products, I was sure that I will cook up something as I bought my very first W&W stamp set. I am simply amazed with the quality of W&W stamps and the solid impressions they give.

I hope I will be able to participate in their all 5 challenges. That's why I have ended my blog post name with "Part 1". :D I have made 2 cards so far that fits into their 3 challenges. Wish me luck!

I will share both cards here as these are kind of inter-related. I will tell you how.

I have never created any card with Rainbow color palette. This is my first try with all the rainbow colors. I used various distress inks to create the rainbow colored Mosaic heart.

As they say you learn from your mistakes. But here I learnt from my messy craft table. My initial plan was to pop out the butterfly out of stenciled heart. But stupid me, I placed the colored heart panel after die cutting SSS Paulina butterfly on misted distress inks which I kept to create another card. The water seeped into CS and spoiled the right side of the heart. Either I could throw the panel into dustbin or use some creativity. I went for second option and I loved the outcome.. :D

1st Card : I cutout the right side of the card which was spoiled and came up with the below card. Backed the panel with the PTI dotted Pattern Paper.Covered the butterfly window with the equally sized SSS Devonshire Butterfly. Added the bold and beautiful sentiment from W&W "The big, the bold and You" stamp set. Lovely!

2nd Card : Since my rainbow mosaic butterfly die cut was ready, I was able to quickly whip up my second card. Die cut the Paulina Butterfly 2-3 times and glued these together and adhered on Kraft CS. The sentiment was heat embossed and needless to say, it's from the W&W "The big, the bold and You" stamp set. I kept it simple so that the focus is on the butterfly.

I also covered the mosaic tiles with Glossy Accents to make the butterfly shine! Here is a close up..

Double Stencling!

Hi All,

Quickly sharing the card I made made using my stuff from Simon Says Stamp and Mama Elephant. This is a quick card I made in 10 mins flat. Seriously, I think this the quickest card i ever whipped up!

I used the tiny hearts stencil first and used various distress inks to create the heart background. Then I used the balloon stencil and lightly inked the stencil so that the background sees through. Love the bunch of overlapping balloons.

Supplies Used:

CardStock : PTI Perfect Match CS Sample, Neenah White
Distress Inks : Picked Raspberry, Peacock Feathers and Mustered Seeds
Stencils : SSS Balloons and Patterns
Stamps : Mama Elephant Make a Wish
Others : Recollection Enamel Dots
